When Desktop Effects are enabled, the Remote Desktop Viewer Stops Updating

Bug Description

Binary package hint: yelp

If I enable Desktop Effects (through System->Appearance menu), my VNC Client stops getting updated image data over Remote Desktop. The client only sees the desktop wallpaper. The client can still control the remote machine, if I watch the computer physically I can see the mouse cursor moving around and clicking on things, but the client sees only Desktop Background. This was also a problem in Jaunty which has not been resolved yet. Turning off all Desktop Effects resolves the problem.
